I guess that is appropriate. :)

I'm not sure I see what the mistake is though. To be clear, the intended meaning is:

    Please allow [excuse] that I speak non-fluently. The reason [for it] is that a long time ago [most recently], lojban was a language used by me.

I don't think that parsed the way you meant it. Check the translation:

F true => A-D false => E true => F false, which is a contradiction.

Ah, that's good. KAG seems like one of those games that die out after a while. Now to reinstall Desura... Well, that and put a stop to this Terraria craze of mine.

Anyway, I added you on Steam (at least I added someone with the same name who also plays a lot of KAG). Maybe we can play a game sometime.

I did want to know that. Og booleans er åbenbart opkaldt efter en George Boole, så jeg synes nu "Booleske" giver god mening ift. det engelske ord (du kan dog altid flytte til Norge, hvor de er enige med dig).

Thanks! That sounds interesting; I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Thanks! Looks like I'll have to add a few artists to my library soon.

It's directly north of Germany, east of the United Kingdom, and west of, and vastly superior to, Sweden. A.k.a. Denmark. :)

Thanks for sharing the music, BTW, I like it.

No worries, I'm glad you like it. If you're digging this guy it might be worth your time to look up the other artists on the Brainfeeder record label, you might find something else to vibe with. It's a smaller label so all the musicians have a similar aesthetic sense.

It was started by Flying Lotus who is a monster producer in his own right and regularly collaborates with Thundercat.

Blocked in my country, but it's on SoundCloud:

Good looking out. If you don't mind my prying, where is your country?

I remember playing this game quite a while ago. I noticed that the developers seem to be making another similar game; is the community for this game still active? I'm kinda tempted to check it out again...

LeWhisp  ·  1198 days ago  ·  link  ·  

It is quite active the community. I would say it is worth a punt at it's current price.

If you do go for it I would be happy to show you the ropes as I am online most evenings.

Maybe I'm the one who misunderstood the puzzle, but isn't that basically the point? They are trying to trick you into thinking that the rule is "each number must be double the last", when it's actually much simpler. That way, if you don't try numbers that doesn't obey the rule, you won't realize that you've got the wrong theory.

I can't think of any obvious incorrect rule the sequence 2, 4, 7 would fit, so people may have stumbled across the correct answer only by verifying correct sequences.

I see your point. However, I don't think that leading someone down a certain path just to pull the rug out from under their feet is the best way to prove a point. There's not a lot of self-discovery going on here. It's just that the creators would rather lead you to where they want you to go than have you lead yourself.

  
Maybe I'm trying to make it more complicated than it needs to be. FWIW, it was an interesting exercise and completing it made me think more critically about the project. Mission accomplished!
